Decided to treat the family to dinner and couldn't have chosen better. The food was excellent and plenty of it. The evening was mad even more enjoyable by seeing some friends from our days with Lane Theatre. It was lovely to reminisce.

Great place to meet with friends Good cakes and coffee as well as light meals Full length windows afford view of lake - so peaceful to look at especially after long drive Fresh flowers on the simple wooden tables - nice touch. Friendly staff sofa seating also available

This is the first time we had been to this place & ended up there by luck as Newquay Zoo cafe was closed. I must admit it isn't much to look at from the outside but the food was outstanding! Even my little boy who at 2 1/2 can be quite difficult when it comes to food, ate a whole... More

As mentioned before i have been here a few times now, never changes, always excellent. Great choice of menu and this time a bit of a Chrismassy atmosphere too. Food is of a high standard and well presented. They need to stock more of the same bottled beers otherwise you end up having different varieties, but not a big deal.
